JITO to coach civil service aspirants

The Jain International Trade Organisation, which started its Coimbatore chapter in 2015, plans to set up a coaching facility here for civil service aspirants.

Ramesh C. Bafna, chairman of JITO-Coimbatore, said the coaching will be open to any aspirant though Jain students will get priority.

The organisation focuses on knowledge, service, and economic empowerment. It runs four coaching centres across the country and has an incubation facility in Mumbai.

It also supports students with interest-free loans for education. In Coimbatore, the organisation plans to build a hostel for Jain students. There are about 500 Jain students here and many of them have very strict food habits. In an effort to help them, it is planned to have a hostel here, he said.

JITO will be associated with Siruthuli in water body conservation programmes. It has separate wings for youth and women and organises several short-term courses.

It also has a business network, he said. It is estimated that Coimbatore is home to nearly 2,000 Jain families and most of them are from Gujarat and Rajasthan. There are Tamil Jain families too here.

There are plans to have chapters of the organisation in Tiruppur and the Nilgiris.
